It’s true. I am pretty organized (just don’t look in my desk). I am totally Type A & not ashamed. It has proven very useful with this lifestyle. Finally, it is a compliment to be “soooooo organized”.
In order to follow a special diet, you have to be organized. I make fresh cookies, muffins, or bread nearly every day. We make pancakes about every other day, more often if all four of us have pancakes. I have to plan my shopping trips because we live so far away from a health food store. I carry extra snacks, supplements and enzymes, just in case. Is it a lot of work? yes. Do I wish it was easier? yes yes.
I am also spending a lot of time online checking product ingredients. The awesome Campbell’s company is sending me a list of GF products. I don’t want to post the list until I’ve checked labels for casein, but they actually HAVE a list. That is such a comfort, we can go to someone’s house & I don’t have to bring everything – just make sure it’s Heinz ketchup.
And, just in case that isn’t enough, I am also considering implementing a rotation diet for Nathan. I am not entirely sure how I am going to work that in, but today was completely rice free, so I guess we could call this day 1 in a rotation, right?
Hey, if you’d asked me 2 months ago how I would ever find time to implement GFCF, I would have told you I was too busy then. The thing is, you are NEVER too busy to help your kids.
